Since call_once relies on static initialization the type has to be POD,
which means it would be more like this:

class once
   typedef ... flag_type;
   flag_type flag;

boost::once once = BOOST_ONCE_INIT;

So you change the syntax slightly, but that's about all.

Again, I'd love to be proven wrong about the POD requirements and would love
to see any implementation that would work with out it.
